Free Game Widgets For Your Start Page or Personal Blog

By

Whether you are looking for a little bling for your blog or a way to spice up your personalized start page, widget games are a great addition that provide entertainment and fun as well as great decoration.

Free game widgets can increase the traffic to your blog by attracting new users and inviting your regulars to stick around for a bit and play a few games. They are also a great way to distract yourself while on your lunch break at work.

The following are the best free widget games available on the web.

Donkey Kong

Arcade Game Widget

Description: The 1981 arcade classic comes to life in this free widget game. Play as the ever-energized Mario jumping over barrels to save the princess from the mean old giant monkey.

Bubbles

Bubbles Widget

Description: Much like the other bubble and marble games out there, the Bubbles game widget is very addicting and can quickly swallow up an hour or two of your time. In order to connect same-colored bubbles together, you fire bubbles from down below. This takes a little bit of aim, so pay careful attention to where you are pointing your bubble.

Super Mario Game

Super Mario Game Widget

Description: This classic Nintendo game would have received a higher rank if it weren't for the annoying advertisements that take up half the widget. Still, it is a fun game and any lover of the Mario games should find it easy to ignore the advertisements.

Mini-Putt Golf Game

Free Widget Game

Description: A neat widget game that takes you through a miniature putt-putt golf course with the same type of wacky holes. The only thing missing from this free widget is a place to get a couple of hotdogs.

Asteroids

Asteroids Widget Game

Description: It's hard to imagine a time when Asteroids was cutting edge graphics, but a few well placed lines made for a great game back in the day. And the gameplay still holds up after all these years as the Asteroids widget is just as addicting as the rest of the free widget games on this list.

Ultimate Flash Sonic

Sonic Widget Game

Description: A fun game, this free widget can be a little small on the screen, but it offers a full screen mode to make things easier. Play as Sonic or another character as you play through a side-scrolling adventure.

PacMan

Pacman Arcade Widget

Description: How many pellets can you gobble up before the spirit world catches up with you? This free widget version of the arcade classic delivers the same great gameplay as the original. Try playing while humming a few bars of the Ghost Busters theme.

iPhone Minesweeper

iPhone Minesweeper

Description: Despite the name, this free widget game actually works fine on a PC and even works great on the Skyfire mobile web browser. Similar to the version of Minesweeper that comes with Windows, players try to clear a minefield by choosing blocks that do not contain mines and marking blocks that do.

(No Code Available)

Save the Ants

Save the Ants

Description: This fun little widget game turns the tide on exterminators everywhere by allowing you to protect ants from raining fireballs by creating a protective bubble around them. Be careful of which ants you try to protect. If a fireball hits your cursor, the game is over.
